Honestly I would just love an inch or two of snow haha, and some cold easterlies. Hopefully my 1000' elevation helps me a bit.

Seeing a zero in January would be incredible at this point.  No doubt the models have really improved today.

While we’re all glued to the models, I hope some of you got a chance to witness that sunset... it’s about as gorgeous a sunset we’ve had in a long time. 

It was spectacular.

I would think Medford must do alright sometimes at least.  A bit more sheltered from marine influence than many places on the west side of the Cascades.

It has! I'm not originally from here though only been living here for 10 years. From those 10 years significant events has been 3. December 2013? (memory is foggy on that one) January 2017 (11inches at least at my home) and February 2019. So yeah, I guess it does alright sometimes. 🌨️

Yeah, the elevation of almost 1400' certainly helps. Their long term snowfall average is very comparable to Portland and Seattle.

Just realized SLE hasn't had a high below 25 since January 2004... That has to be some kind of record.

This run kind of reminds me of the run up to that storm around February 10-11, 2019 that looked like it was going to slam Oregon, but ended up strengthening and going north. Worked out well for Seattle though. 

From what I recall, it really wasn’t a big surprise given overall model consensus. Pretty much all models inside of a week showed Seattle getting the goods. Only some showed Portland getting much.

It's called clown range for a reason.

If these models run the table like this we are going to hit 500 pages for this months thread before it's all said and done.

Has that ever happened?

Feb 2019 had like 600+ posts over 3 threads with 2 massive events 2 weeks apart. I would put the Vegas moneyline odds of us needing a second January thread at -300 at this point.

Interestingly, they also went a pretty long time in the heart of the KOLD PHASE without one, from January 1950 to December 1964. Lots more close calls, though.

Thank you! I'm not knowledgeable about weather etc. and also I come from the Caribbean so I'm more used to hurricanes and humidity. So it's really fascinating about the climate around this parts and it's very hard to find forums talking about PNW weather so was very happy to have found this one.

Well

then no such chance of that happening now

Down here on 2/4/19...we had a midnight high temp of 30...and mid afternoon it was 24 degrees with howling north winds. It definitely can happen. We’ve had some high temps in the upper 20s in recent years as well.

Cold season rainfall-

Sub 40 highs-0

Sub 32 highs-0

Sub 32 lows-0

Yeah, PDX also did it in January 2004, December 2008, and February 2014. A little easier there with the gorge.

Been a 3-4 and 8-9 thing lately so we're now dew. 

Where do you go for data, I was looking at weather underground but there seems to be missing and some of the data seems suspect

You just need snow cover and clear skies and of course a cold airmass...Eugene had high of 19 Dec 2013.  I would like to see repeat of single digit high (PDX 1888, EUG 1919)

If you want a site that's really quick and user friendly, I'd recommend 

https://xmacis.rcc-acis.org/

Select Single Station- 'Daily Data For a Month' and then you can scroll through the different NWS databases. 

Wunderground unfortunately has gone to complete waste.

If you don’t mind me asking, where in the Caribbean are you from? That’s quite a change in climate! My father in law is from Belize. Even though he’s lived in Washington for 30 years, he’s still always cold!

I'm from Puerto Rico and moved to OR in 2010. Yes, very drastic change and you never get used to the cold!
